We would like to therefore draw your attention to the following information and would ask for your cooperation:</p> <ul> <li>&nbsp;The turning circle at the school gates has double yellow lines; therefore there is no stopping at any time for vehicles. Traffic wardens patrol the area regularly and will issue a parking fine if your vehicle stops in this area or on any of the restricted areas such as double yellow lines and zigzags.</li> <li>&nbsp;We would respectfully ask that you do not park on Daffodil Close as there are no footpaths on this road making pedestrian access dangerous. In addition many residents have complained about vehicles parking on gardens and blocking driveways.</li> <li>&nbsp;The bay outside the school is designated residents parking only. Vehicles should not block the resident&rsquo;s bay as this causes issues for vehicles turning from the school and for emergency vehicles that may need to access the residents of the bungalows.</li> </ul> <p>Thrum Hall Methodist Church has kindly allowed us to use their car park, we ask for your consideration when using this facility. Should you wish to discuss any of these items further please do not hesitate in contacting me.</p> <p>Yours sincerely</p> <p>Julia Sandiford-Mitchell</p> <p>Headteacher</p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/logo/AVATAR(1).jpegMon, 18 Sep 2017 21:25:07 GMTLatest Newsletterhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-15-latest-newsletter-3http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-15-latest-newsletter-3<p><img alt="" src="/images/news/17-09-14_Wk02_.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 1274px;" /></p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/news/news(1).jpgMon, 18 Sep 2017 21:09:43 GMTFamily Language Coursehttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-family-language-coursehttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-family-language-coursehttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/family_lang.jpgThu, 14 Sep 2017 19:18:30 GMTLiving Wellhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-living-wellhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-living-wellhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/Living_well.jpgThu, 14 Sep 2017 19:01:30 GMTFriday Night Dinnershttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-friday-night-dinnershttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-14-friday-night-dinnershttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/friday_night_dinners.jpgThu, 14 Sep 2017 18:58:58 GMTLatest Newsletterhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-08-latest-newsletterhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-08-latest-newsletter<p><img alt="" src="/images/news/17-09-07_Wk01_.jpg" style="width: 1000px; height: 1294px;" /></p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/news/news.jpgFri, 15 Sep 2017 19:42:37 GMTNo-Fighting Agreementhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-01-no-fighting-agreementhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-01-no-fighting-agreement<p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/logo/AVATAR(1).jpeg" style="width: 200px; height: 200px;" /></p> <p>September 2017</p> <p>Dear Parent/Guardian</p> <h3>THE SCHOOL`S NO-FIGHTING AGREEMENT</h3> <h4><span style="color:#008000;">THE CHILDREN have promised that they will:</span></h4> <h5>1. Try their very best to be kind towards other children.</h5> <h5>2. Not hurt other children whether they are in or out of School.</h5> <h5>3. Not &ldquo;hit back&rdquo; if someone hurts them but will ask the person why they hurt them.</h5> <h5>4. AND will tell an adult - a teacher or parent - straightaway if someone is hurting or trying to hurt them.</h5> <h4><span style="color:#008000;">THE TEACHERS have promised that they will:</span></h4> <h5>1. Work hard to make school a safe place where children have the right not to be bullied.</h5> <h5>2. Immediately start to investigate when a child says they have been hurt by someone including those incidents out of school time.</h5> <h5>3. Support the victims in an appropriate way.</h5> <h5>4. Listen to all the children involved in an incident and record what they agree has happened in the &ldquo;fighting book&rdquo; for future reference.</h5> <h5>5. Inform parents if their child has been involved in fighting or bullying.</h5> <h5>6. Ensure that the offender understands what they have done wrong and if appropriate see that the offender is punished.</h5> <h4><span style="color:#008000;">THE PARENTS need to promise that they will:</span></h4> <h5>1. Not tell their children to &lsquo;hit back&rsquo; or &ldquo;to stick up for themselves&rdquo; if they have been hurt, but will tell them to ask for the help of an adult.</h5> <h5>&nbsp; &nbsp;Hitting back ALWAYS makes physical confrontation worse.</h5> <h5>2. Tell their children to ask the teacher (or other adult) for help if someone hurts them. At Shawclough we deal with the incident when we know</h5> <h5>&nbsp; &nbsp; about it.</h5> <h5>3. Report any concerns of the child to school immediately, don&rsquo;t hope it will go away!</h5> <p>Julia Sandiford-Mitchell</p> <p>Headteacher</p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/news/e72719d5206cf3edad5ce7b77a31c5f4.jpgFri, 01 Sep 2017 19:10:58 GMTBEGINNING AND END OF THE SCHOOL DAYhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-01-beginning-and-end-of-the-school-dayhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-09-01-beginning-and-end-of-the-school-day<p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/logo/AVATAR(1).jpeg" style="width: 200px; height: 200px;" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p>September 2017</p> <p>Dear Parents/Carers</p> <h2><b>BEGINNING AND END OF THE SCHOOL DAY</b></h2> <h4><b>The school day starts at 8.40 a.m.&nbsp; It is parents who are responsible for ensuring that children arrive on time to start school at 8.40 a.m. &nbsp;</b></h4> <h4><b>Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children until the doors open at 8.30 a.m.</b></h4> <p>To improve the safety of all our children we have made some changes to the way in which parents and children come into school.</p> <p>For the safety of all our children the following rules must be followed by all parents and children:</p> <h2><b>Nursery</b></h2> <p>All parents must walk all the way&nbsp; around the building (past Community) to the Nursery outside door which will be opened by our staff.</p> <h2><b>Unit One</b></h2> <ul> <li>Blue Class &ndash; all parents and children must use the outside door into Blue Class</li> <li>Turquoise &amp; Purple Classes &ndash; all parents and children must use the outside door at the side of Purple Class</li> <li>Lavender Class &ndash; all parents and children must use the outside entrance at the side of Lavender Class</li> </ul> <h2><b>Units Two, Three and Four</b></h2> <p>All children and parents going into Units 2, 3 and 4 must use the main entrance into school.&nbsp; At the end of the day the children in Units 2, 3 and 4 must be collected from the dining hall or just outside the school at a place you have agreed with your child.</p> <p>Children remaining in school after 3.30 p.m., without notification, will be placed in Tea Time Club at the parents expense.</p> <p>Yours sincerely</p> <p>Julia Sandiford-Mitchell</p> <p>Headteacher</p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/Back-To-School-Clipart-2.pngFri, 01 Sep 2017 18:52:30 GMTNew Menu Beginning Sept 17http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-07-20-new-menu-beginning-sept-17http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-07-20-new-menu-beginning-sept-17<p>Free School Meals All children in Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal.

If you would like some more information please contact the school office.</p> <p><span style="color:#008000;">The Team </span></p> <p>The highly skilled school catering team provide freshly cooked meal daily. We source as many of our ingredients as we can locally and try to cook as many from scratch as possible. Items marked [H] are homemade.</p> <p><span style="color:#008000;">The Benefits </span></p> <p>There is evidence that the food eaten by children affects their behaviour and their ability to learn. By committing to regular school meals you can be sure that your child is earing well at lunchtime and is ready to learn in the afternoon.</p> <p><span style="color:#008000;">The benefits of school dinners are: </span></p> <ul> <li>All menus are nutritionally balanced and conform to the government guidelines</li> <li>Children can sit together and enjoy their meal whilst developing those social skills of eating together - using cutlery, table manners &ndash; that are important in later life</li> <li>A well fed and happy child is more likely to be receptive to participating in afternoon learning</li> <li>You don&rsquo;t have to worry about preparing a healthy packed lunch.</li> </ul> <p><span style="color:#008000;">Week Numbers</span></p> <p>We operate a three week menu which rotates each week.</p> <p>These are the dates for the year:</p> <p><img alt="" src="/images/news/1(2).jpg" style="width: 355px;

shoe collection with Bag2School in order to raise funds for our new playground project.&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Bag2School</b> <b>is the UK&rsquo;s leading textile recycler and fundraiser working with schools and since its inception in 2001 it has now paid out over &pound;27 million.</b></p> <p>As well as raising vitally needed funds for Shawclough Primary School, it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 350,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.&nbsp;</p> <p>By getting involved in our <b>Bag2School</b> collection, you have an opportunity to sort through your cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted textiles in the bag provided &ndash; this can include adults&rsquo; and children&rsquo;s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, handbags and soft toys, (please refer to <a href="http://uk.bag2school.com/">http://uk.bag2school.com/</a> for full details). In addition to raising much needed funds it will also raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.</p> <p>If you fill the donation bag and still have more then you can use any other bag to donate your items and don&rsquo;t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well!</p> <p><b>Bag2School</b> will be collecting from Shawclough Primary School on <b>Friday 19</b><b><sup>th</sup></b><b> May</b>. Please bring your bag (or bags!) to <b>Cots &amp; Tots entrance</b> and help us have a really good collection.</p> <p>In addition on <b>Friday 30</b><b><sup>th</sup></b><b> June</b> we will be holding a Sports afternoon and after we will be having some lovely stalls for you and your families to visit.

However, if school does need to close we will inform parents in the following ways:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p align="center">Text Message</p> <p align="center">and</p> <p align="center">Via the council website &ndash; <a href="http://www.rochdale.gov.uk/snow">www.rochdale.gov.uk/snow</a></p> <p align="center">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>THE SCHOOL CAR PARK</strong></p> <p>We are likely to remain open through any snow problems, however, our car park may have to be closed.&nbsp; Just to remind you &ndash; <strong>parents should not be using our school car park.</strong>&nbsp; Please ensure you drive and park safely in any bad weather &ndash; it is better to walk a little bit further than have an accident.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>ACCESS TO SCHOOL</strong></p> <p>During very poor weather <strong>school will only grit the path to the front entrance of school.</strong>&nbsp; We ask all site users to use this path in bad weather.&nbsp; The path to Unit One and the School Nursery will be closed.&nbsp; We will attempt to clear the path around the front of school to Cots &amp; Tots Nursery.&nbsp; In very severe weather the only access to the site will be through the main gate &ndash; all other perimeter gates will be closed.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>COLLECTING CHILDREN</strong></p> <p>Children will not be released early unless there are exceptional circumstances.&nbsp; Any children who have not been collected at 3.15 p.m. will automatically be put into Tea Time Club to ensure their safety and will be kept until parents arrive &ndash; even if this is after 4.15 p.m.&nbsp; We have made this decision as we have found in previous years that it is impossible to deal with the volume of individual messages from parents who have been delayed due to bad weather.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me in school.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Yours sincerely</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Julia Sandiford-Mitchell</p> <p>Headteacher</p> <p><br /> <a href="http://www.shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/parents/policies/bad-weather-conditions">http://www.shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/parents/policies/bad-weather-conditions</a></p> http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/images/news/BAD_WEATHER.jpgThu, 10 Nov 2016 20:46:21 GMTLatest Newsletter http://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-11-10-latest-newsletterhttp://shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-11-10-latest-newsletter<p>10 November 2016</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Dear Parents</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

In school we usually know when this is the case for academic work because we are continually assessing the children.&nbsp; We also are aware when children have special educational needs.&nbsp; However, I am aware there may be other things that happen to the children which may need extra care but about which we are not aware.&nbsp; Please contact school if there are times when you think your child needs something extra we will do our very best to organise the support needed.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>COATS</strong></p> <p>Please do send your child in a warm outdoor coat now the weather is colder.&nbsp;

if this is outside the building Mr Rushton will remind any children still waiting outside to make their way to Tea Time Club</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>The charge for a session at Tea Time Club is &pound;2.00.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>APPOINTMENTS</strong></p> <p>Please ensure that any <strong>routine non-urgent appointments (eg dental check-ups) are made outside the school day</strong> &ndash; these could be made for school holidays or early evenings).&nbsp; We do understand that those children who have hospital, speech therapy appointments or urgent dental appointments will have to attend during the school day.&nbsp; Thank you for your support.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you have an appointment for yourself please make arrangements for your child to be collected by someone else in your absence.&nbsp; <strong>You should not be requesting</strong> to collect your child early unless there are exceptional circumstances.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>CHILDREN&rsquo;S SCHOOL DIARIES YEARS 4/5/6&hellip;</strong></p> <p>I hope you are aware that your child has been given a home-school homework diary (these have been issued to children in years 4-6).&nbsp; As well as informing you of the homework your child has to do the diary will hopefully prove to be a valuable means of communication for us all.&nbsp; Your child must bring their diary each day.&nbsp; Lost diaries can be replaced at the cost of &pound;1.50 each.&nbsp; Children are able to earn badges during the school year and parents will be invited to our special celebration assemblies on Fridays when their child is receiving their badge.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>UNIT 2 PARENTS MATHS MEETING 21 SEPTEMBER</strong></p> <p>There will be a meeting for parents of Year 2 &amp; 3 children on the 21<sup>st</sup> September at 3.30 p.m. until 4.15 p.m. in Unit 2.&nbsp; It is very important that parents attend as there will be vital information on the changes to the year 2 &amp; 3 maths curriculum.&nbsp; We would appreciate it if parents could make arrangements for children to be looked after during the meeting &ndash; our Tea Time Club is open until 4.10 p.m. and will be free of charge to those parents who are attending this meeting.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>CYCLING TO SCHOOL</strong></p> <p>Remember you can cycle to school and use the bike racks (and your lock) to store it.&nbsp;
